ABU DHABI — Vice President Đặng Thị Ngọc Thịnh paid a visit to the Vietnamese Embassy in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), during which she asked the embassy’s staff to give more advice to the Party and State on specific measures to further promote the partnership between Việt Nam and the UAE.
During her stay in the country from June 17 to 18, Vice President Thịnh also had a working session with the leaders of Nakheel & Limitless Group – a major state-owned business from of the UAE operating in real estate, resorts and entertainment. Established in 2000, the Dubai-based firm has projects in 87 countries, including the US$550 million Hạ Long Star project in Việt Nam’s Quảng Ninh Province.
The Vice President said Việt Nam highly values its economic partnership with the UAE. She lauded the UAE and Nakheel & Limitless Group for investing in Việt Nam through many big infrastructure projects.
The Vietnamese Government is willing to create favourable conditions for UAE investors to operate in Việt Nam, she said.
The leaders of Nakheel & Limitless Group spoke highly of the tourism and agricultural development potential of Việt Nam, saying it is a promising market for UAE investors. They expressed their hope that the Vietnamese Government will design preferential policies to attract more investors from the Middle East and consider launching a direct air route linking Việt Nam and the UAE.
The firm is calling for the involvement of international investors to expand the scale of the Hạ Long Star project, they said, inviting the Vice President to attend the groundbreaking ceremony slated for late this year. — VNS
